Today I’m joining Table for Two USA (TFT) to promote their World Food Day Campaign 2017. This campaign promotes healthy Japanese food and aims to provide 1 million meals to children in need.
Table for Two USA is a non-profit organization that aims to tackle obesity and hunger issues simultaneously. Their campaign starts today from October 5th to November 15th. As a part of the campaign, it features the Japanese iconic food “Onigiri” aka Japanese rice balls.
ONE Onigiri Photo Post Brings 5 School Meals!
The onigiri picture above can bring 5 school meals to children in need.
Yes, it’s that simple. Sponsor organizations will donate 5 school meals per photo submitted!
In Africa, 25 cent donation can provide one school meal to a child. In the U.S., the same donation enables schools to provide school meals upgraded with fresh vegetables and fruits in low-income neighborhood school districts.
Here’s How You can Participate #OnigiriAction
Step 1. Snap a picture of your Onigiri
Take pictures of your Onigiri preparation and enjoyment. You can take a picture of your Onigiri preparation to show off your cooking talent, OR snap a photo you eating Onigiri with your friends. You get to contribute to a good cause and let your creativity shines at the same time! Have fun making & eating Onigiri.
Step 2. Post your photos on the Website or on Your SNS

And as a bonus, the Best of Best Onigiri photos will be selected and recognized.

Let’s make a difference together #OnigiriAction!
Last year’s #OnigiriAction generated 108,815 onigiri photos from all over the world. I know I can count on the supportive and caring JOC community to make this campaign a success again. Together we can end childhood hunger by connecting kids to the healthy food they need, every day. Let’s join #OnigiriAction together for the great cause!
